Shek O, Hong Kong

4.3
#2 of 15 in Beaches in Hong Kong
A contrast to Hong Kong's tall skyscrapers and big business, the seaside village of Shek O shows the island's other side: pleasant beaches, a relaxed pace, and nature to explore. The area is even home to a prehistoric rock carving, depicting geometric designs and animals. Seemingly untouched by the arrival of the British, this little town has a stronger Chinese feel to it, with narrow lanes, colorful houses, and small temples. A hike up to a popular viewpoint affords a panoramic view of the coastline below. Use our Hong Kong trip itinerary planning site to visit Shek O on your trip to Hong Kong, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
